A Courageous Heart

Aka 'The Courageous Heart of Irena Sendler'. Anna Paquin stars in this inspiring true story as Irena Sendler who was one of the most remarkable, and unlikely, heroes of World War II. As a Catholic social worker, she risked her life repeatedly to save the lives of over 2500 Jewish children and babies during the Nazi occupation of Poland. Having access to the Warsaw Ghetto, where she saw the daily dangers the Jewish children faced, she devised, at great personal risk, extraordinary schemes to smuggle the children past the Nazi guards to safety, where they were then placed with safe families until the end of the war. Based on the authorized biography, 'Mother of the Children of the Holocaust: The Irena Sendler Story', by Anna Mieszkowska.
